With the price of fuel being what it is, the mileage you're getting is becoming more important. This is the place to discuss the mileage performance you're getting out in the real world.

I have close to 3K and the last 1700 miles I've averaged 18.8 mpg. Mostly city driving. I'm pleased.

just got back from a highway road trip, averaged 21.3 mpg for 500 miles in our R350. overall combined city/highway driving average for 1200 miles is 17.8 mpg.

I have averaged 21.4 over the last 7000 miles. Have 11.5k on the odo. I have clocked 24.5mpg on a 600 highway trip this spring, and regularly do between 22-23 mpg on shorter highway trips.
Very pleased with the numbers, given the size of the car,\.

Most of my driving is done in the city and I've averaged 16.8 mpg. We did take a trip to Toronto and on the way back, we decided to see how well it performed at high speeds. At 65 mph, we were getting aprox. 20.2 mpg; 80 mph it was 22 mpg and around 110-115 mpg around 21.6. Odd that I got better mileage at 80 than 65 considering I don't have air suspension which lowers the body at high speeds.
#6 of 23 19.6 mostly city R350 with 7K miles

I got 23 on the turnpike 200 milesI'm really happy with the mpg. My C-class got 22-23, so considering the size, it's awesome. Hey what are you R diesels getting?

We've got 2 r350s. Both average 20.2 or so mpg after the first year. Completely trouble-free. We're extremely surprised at how efficient they've been. My previous cars (nissan Armada and Honda Odyssey) averaged 11.5 and 19mpg.
#9 of 23 24 mpg highway cruiser.

In town stop and go short trips 17-18 mpg.
But this is a cruiser! It loves freeways. 70 miles per hour = 24 mpg for 4 hour trips on freeway. This is a huge vehicle for such a modest thirst.
